Passing time on vacation with the Ice Game
Does anyone else play this game?
My kids love this one: on airplanes, restaurants and other places that serve ice with a hole in the middle.
Each player fishes one piece of ice from their drink (use spoons, please!), then threads it across the top of the glass, using a straw. Like this:

The winner is the one whose ice drops last.
Yes, this is incredibly silly. But it kills time when waiting around like no other no-cost solution I've found.
Love it! Is it considered cheating to blow on other people's ice to make it melt faster?
Not a bad idea. Sometimes you're just too exhausted to make conversation.
I used to do that as a wee lad..but I didn't know it was a game. And I'm certainly no longer a "wee" lad. But considering my unabashed love for roller coasters and amusement parks, I might be a "wheeee!" lad.
Touching, blowing on or otherwise disturbing someone else's ice is an immediate DQ.
Watching ice melt!! Oh my! What's next? Watching paint dry?
I hope he kicked your Butt , Bobby...
